Dreamland

This week, Disenchantment was released on Netflix. Disenchantment is an animated series about Bean, an alcoholic, spoiled princess (literally), her personal demon Luci, and an optimistic elf, aptly named Elfo. The series follows their adventures in Bean’s kingdom, Dreamland, and the hijinks that follow them.

Disenchantment also comes from a long legacy of great shows. Its creator, Matt Groening, helped create The Simpsons, helmed Futurama, and now is putting his efforts into this comedic fantasy adventure. (more…)

The first trailer has arrived for Disney’s live-action remake of Dumbo which blends a Greatest Showman style circus tale with the directorial stylings of Tim Burton.  Based on a storyline written by Helen Aberson.  The film stars Collin Farrell, MIchael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green, and Alan Arkin.

This live-action film reworks the tale of the bullied elephant with big ears.  Farrier (Farrell) is a former horse showman and war veteran who’s taking care of his two kids after his wife passed away. Their world changes after circus owner Max (DeVito who seems to have kept his costume from Big Fish) buys a pregnant elephant who gives birth to Dumbo with his giant ears.
